And, I'm also 'about' making our native Beach Primrose a common landscape plant for beach area residences(and also Camissonia bistorta just in-land, and much further inland, from the beach), particularly with loose easy-dig soil or straight beach sand. Blooms year-round if they don't get too dry relative for their abilities, though lives only about a year or two or a bit more, but readily re-establishes from self-sown seed. Will keep best appearance with occasional/infrequent watering during summer into fall. Trimming off the old stems is necessary for a groomed/freshest appearance late in the growing season.
